A new traveling exhibit from Ely, Minnesota’s International Wolf Center, in partnership with Outhouse Exhibit Services, Inc, entitled “Wolves and Wild Lands in the 21st Century” is now open in Como’s Exhibit Gallery.
The traveling exhibit, “Wolves and Wild Lands” brings compelling stories of wolves and their relationship to humans. For example, did you know that wolves once occupied every habitat in North America, from mid Mexico to the polar ice pack? Human encroachment has led to diminished territories and prey for most wolves, but much important work is being done to find a way towards harmony between wolves and people.
The exhibit is comprised of six preserved taxidermy specimens: 5 wolves and a coyote, each presented in its human and natural-history context, along with graphics providing regional information that impacts each of these animals. Species included are Arctic Wolf, Mexican Wolf, Coyote, Red Wolf, Rocky Mountain Wolf, and the Great Plains Wolf
This program was funded in part or in whole with money from the vote of the people of Minnesota on November 4, 2008 which dedicated funding to preserve Minnesota’s art and cultural heritage.
